Debian powerpc installer supports New World Mac[0] machines and IBM
POWER5 and newer IBM POWER servers.

It should probably look something like:
Architecture   | Designation | Subarchitecture             | Flavor
PowerPC, POWER | powerpc     | G3 and G4 New World Mac     | powerpc
               |             | G5 Mac, IBM POWER5 or newer | powerpc64
POWER (LE)     | ppc64el     | IBM POWER8 or newer machines|
